Oh Costco

Ok we all know how dangerous Costco can be! I personally had several Costco visits where I had no self control:) and it showed in the end at that register! But that was before my Budget commitment! So yesterday I took
A trip out to Costco which here in mt. Juliet was a 1.5h round trip! In the morning I made a list and was determined to stick to it! Costco here is huge and there products are a little different from what I am used to in California. For example they do sell individual items like single milk, produce and some other daily necessities. I liked that since it saved me a trip to a grocery store. Unfortunately their produce did not look that great, let's hope it is not always the case! I did pretty well and one of my favorite items at Costco is their meat. It is really good and you can't beat the price! I usually get their chicken, ribeye steaks, roast and salmon! At home I cut the Salmon in slices and put two portions in a ziplock freezer bag. Steaks are one per Ziplock because they are so big we usually share one! The meat does really well and now when I do my weekly grocery shopping I don't need to worry about a big ticket item like "meat" plus the quality is really good.

Easter Coloring:)

Today we colored Easter eggs! I wanted to keep it simple since my 2 year old does not have the attention span for it. So we stopped at Walmart wee we got the coloring kit. It was $1.97 which included 5 colors and stickers!
We also got a cute chick plastic tray for the finished eggs for $1.

After his nap my son had so much fun doing it :) and all under $4' that felt the best:)
